PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - The 22-year-old who went on a rampage in California, stabbing three people to death and shooting another three before turning the gun on himself, has written about his childhood trips to Penang with his Malaysian mother Ong Li Chin Rodger.

In a 140-page document, Elliot Rodger recounted the time when he and his family came for a holiday in Malaysia after his third birthday and again when he was 13, which he "enjoyed very much."

Elliot's father is Hollywood assistant director Peter Rodger who helped direct Hunger Games.

"Sometime after my third birthday, we all went on a vacation to Malaysia, my mother's home country.
